Madonna planning 2012 world tour? Alleged pic purports concert dates | MLive.com vadge to tour in 2012 - leaked itinerary?
We know that Madonna has a new album in the works and will be at the Super Bowl halftime show, but is she going to be hitting the road, too?
DrownedMadonna, a Madonna fan site, blogged today that they received word from "an unconfirmed insider" about the possibility of a Madonna world tour. And because we're living in the "show me the receipts
" era, they've also got a photo of a tour itinerary underneath Live Nation letterhead. http://drownedmadonna.com/index/item...or-false?.html
Madonna was the first artist to sign with Live Nation for all business ventures, so it's not too far-fetched.
DrownedMadonna: Apparently the itinerary of Madonna's next tour will be revealed at a press conference to be held on Monday, October 31st. What we have been sent is also a likely first tour itinerary draft. According to the anonymous source, Live Nation is still negotiating with China. The source says Chinese authorities want to know what songs Madonna will perform and have also sent a list of songs Madonna is not allowed to sing in China. Among them "Material Girl" and "Erotica." Madonna would really like to perform in China. If the first itinerary draft - which is shown below - is genuine, the tour would start in New Zeland on March 31, 2012. Next it would stop in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, UAE and Israel. Besides China, apparently there are also negotiations for the Philippines and Taiwan. The next leg would move to Europe and then to North America.
Two things of note: What's so wrong with "Material Girl" that would merit its banning in China? And, if you click the DrownedMadonna link, Madonna's purported schedule does not have a Michigan stop. Other than funerals and film festivals, when was the last time Madge has visited here for something musical? Only her 2008 "Sticky & Sweet" tour made it here, her first since 1993's "The Girlie Show."
Guy O'Seary, Madonna's manager, hasn't tweeted anything to the contrary, and he's usually the go-to source for all things Madonna. Come October 31, we'll see what she's got planned -- if anything.
